“Good spot”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Came here on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. Lots of dock space for transcient boats with very helpful dock hand. Wonderful views. The place was packed with patrons. We chose the bar area and ordered Bloody Mary's and their take on fish and chips. Drinks were really good. The fish was seared ahi served with tomato salsa and baja dressing. Taco chips were part of the meal. Very, very good until I discovered a hair in my meal...eweeee! Damn, I was enjoying that ahi. They offered to make another but I opted to have it taken back and off the bill. Regardless of this big boo boo on their part I would go again.

“Family Tradition”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We have been going to Dockside's for years! Before we head home, we always stop here for an early dinner. Located on the inner costal, it is one last amazing view of the water and beautiful boats. The service, drinks and food are always good. It is a must place to eat after a day at the beach.

“Oyster Heaven”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Really good place with great seafood and wonderful seating. If you like oysters, this is the place. After your meal, make sure you try the banana pudding - the real thing...not a mix!

“Our favorite”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I think I have written a review on this place before but since it is our favorite hangout spot while visiting in the Wrightsville Beach area I had to do it again. Just across the draw bridge on the intercostal waterway it is the locals favorite. Staff is great and if you come back more than once especially in the bar area they will definitely remember you. Just a nice relaxing place to sit, sip an adult beverage and watch the water traffic and people. I highly recommend it. Food is great also!!
